RALEIGH, North Carolina – Although Super Bowl XLV is over and the Green Bay Packers are world champions, it’s never too early to get ready for some football. Electronic Arts’ North Carolina studio has finished its first Nintendo 3DS game, and the first EA Sports game for the new glasses-free 3D gaming portable.
Madden NFL Football is ready for the launch of Nintendo’s new portable on March 27th in the U.S. EA promises that the gridiron game will deliver captivating gameplay in 3D, providing a robust and authentic NFL experience consistent with the celebrated football video game franchise. Check out this exclusive first look at the new football game inside EA’s North Carolina studio as developer Ryan Stradling takes us inside the huddle of 3D football.
Madden NFL Football will offer a comprehensive handheld experience with exciting modes, such as authentic 11-on-11 football, fast-paced 5-on-5 action and Season Mode. Additional features jump off the screen with 3D graphics, such as Spotlight Moments and Call Your Shots. Utilizing the remarkable power of the Nintendo 3DS Touch Screen, Call Your Shots allows users to draw their own plays, on-the-fly, directly on the screen.
With three types of play calling—GameFlow, Classic, and Arcade—Madden NFL Football provides an enjoyable experience for gamers of all skill levels. GameFlow automatically selects the best play for the situation based on real NFL team gameplans; streamlining play calling and shortening overall game length for a more accessible experience. Classic play call allows users to experience the full depth of selecting formations and individual plays, while Arcade play call simplifies options through a more concentrated playbook.
Madden NFL Football will bring each of the 32 NFL teams and stadiums to life like never before with a presentation optimized for viewing in 3D, including 3D specific cameras that provide new levels of depth, making Madden NFL Football the perfect on-the-go game for every football fan.
